Luck’ Film Review

Sam Greenfield (voiced by Hadestown’s Eva Noblezada) might just be the world’s unluckiest person.

Luck tells the story of how Sam momentarily comes into better fortunes, loses that opportunity and sets out to find it again.

A longtime choreographer at Walt Disney Studios, Peggy Holmes directs this exceptionally crafted magical adventure.

Leprechauns, rabbits, cats, and pigs in golden suits populate the Land of Luck, working by fabricating luck or polishing lucky pennies in peculiar assembly lines.

Early on, while Sam and Bob are still on the human plane, there’s a chase scene through a city just before sunset and just after rain.

Capitalism is embedded in how the storytellers think about these extraordinary worlds.
